MRI language for cervical herniation?

"C3-4, there is interval progression to central disc extrusion with minimal superior and inferior migration associated annular fissure which mildly deforms the ventral aspect of the spinal cord. The spinal canal is adequately patent. "

After looking things up, I read that there is a herniated disc(disc extrusion) pushing into the front of the spinal cord.  
The spinal cord has enough room to move.

But not sure what "minimal superior and inferior migration " means?

Symptoms are intermittent burning sensations that last from 5 sec to 20 sec and are in my arms, hands, legs, feet, trunk.
